Just once I'd like to be a fly on a bathroom wall when Trump combs his hair in the mornings. Is he really bald on top and just swirls his remaining hair in some way onto his skull (glue?) while the rest hangs down like a curtain behind? I've never seen a hairstyle like it, actually!

But is it his hair.

Maybe the eagle's nest on the top is a wiglet. But surely if he has a toupee he'd buy a better one than that? I mean, his hair's been a target for late night comedians for a decade or more.

I thought some sort of animal climbed up on his head and died.

but they scare me, or at least make me nervous.

Trump-too controversial. egomaniac, says (and maybe believes?) things that are simply unconstitutional.

Cruz-way to conservative. hard to read his true personality. and if other politicians don't even like him-yikes.

Rubio-vacuous pretty boy. cant or wont even do his job in the senate. too inexperienced.

Hillary-a flat out liar. she only wants the job because she reeeeeally wants the job (and for personal power reasons only sad to say). Her and her husband have serious moral deficiancies.

Sanders-truly a good guy, but a socialist. Darn.


Kasich is the only one Id feel OK with but unfortunately he dosnt have a chance.

Dear Abby, there is nothing wrong with being a Socialist. And actually Sanders is not. however he would fit into the middle of the British labour party, certainly not the left wing bit of it.

I think in all the elections, Congress, President, Senate, primaries etc there should be a box you can mark which says "none of the above." Or even "stop offering me this ****."

Trump and Adolf? At least the hair on the head of Der Fuhrer was definitely real, and the moustache too - but too much like Chaplin, who noticed it.

Two of the candidates in this election, even if I disagreed with their politics or policies, I would have had no problem having dinner with: Bernie Sanders and Dr. Carson. Carson at time shows too rigid a belief in conservatist theory and in mistrust of anyone from Islam, but he is a highly competent surgeon and his intentions (mostly) are decent ones. I could see him, like Dr. C. Everett Coop (another anti-abortionist) as a highly competent Surgeon General. Bernie is not a total left Socialist, but I really doubt if he could push his tax reforms totally through (Hillary might get some through, with her husband's advice). But Bernie is the real thing. To me, Bill probably is close to the real thing. Hillary is (on a personal level) fairly scary.

I keep hoping for a miracle for John Kalich!

To me, living four hundred miles from the St. Laurence River and Seaway, the idiocy about the birth of Senator Cruz and how it makes him not eligible for the White House is not insulting to Cruz and Latinos (another group Trump dislikes) but to our neighbors to the North.* Yes, we have that clause in the U.S. Constitution regarding not having foreign born Presidents (but note, it does not go below the President and Vice President) but it could be reconsidered and amended now. Trump tried to blow out Obama claiming he was actually not U.S. born but Kenyan and Islamic. It flopped (though Trump chooses not to mention it was a failure - he hates to admit he fails many times). If I were from Africa or from Islam I'd be uptight for that one. But this is Canada - across the NORTHERN border. Had the U.S. been luckier (we did not deserve to be) in the War of 1812, Cruz would have been safely born in a U.S. City. Gee, maybe (since Trump's father is of southern German ancestry) we ought to make sure he was born in the U.S., and that none of his family's relatives were members of the Gestapo or S.S. or S.A. from 1933 - 1945.

*Not many people know of this, but when Chester Arthur became President in 1881, succeeding the dead Garfield, a similar story was put up about him. Many feared that Arthur, a political associate of the controversial head of the New York State Republican Party, Senator Roscoe Conkling, would be a figure-head for Conkling to run the country. Arthur was from Vermont, but close to the Canadian border. He had gone to Union College in New York State (he is our first President who was a Phi Beta Kappa member), went to Albany Law School, and practiced law in New York City. For all intents and purposes he was a New York resident. but his opponents insisted he was born not in Vermont but Canada. He too lived down this political lie. Arthur also proved to be his own man in the White House, and performed quite well (if not a great President, a respectable one) keeping Conkling at bay and dropping him.

The toothbrush mustache was very popular from 1900 until around 1943 or so. Oliver Hardy, George Orwell, Charles de Gaulle and Max Fleischer all rocked one. Chaplin's was fake though

Personally, I have always prefered the classic Van Dyke.

Great thing about our system, it doesn't matter if Sanders is a socialist as long as Congress isn't.
